25 Parent Reviews for St. Theresas Catholic School

We have multiple children at this school, and have been very pleased. The teachers are very loving and the academics are top notch. We especially enjoy the sense of community within the school - among the children and the families.

While no school is perfect, St Theresa is a great little school with a huge heart. My kids are in large top-rated public high schools now and were well prepared both academically and socially after 10 years there. At STCS they received a quality education and learned the incredibly important skill of ...  Read more

St Theresa is an excellent school and a great community. We have been part of St Theresa school and parish for 17 years and have had a great experience. I would highly recommemd St Theresa to any family looking for a safe, challenging, positive and nurturing environment for their children.

After reading and agreeing with so many of the negative reviews regarding teacher and administration issues at STCS, I wanted to also highlight issues about the students treatment of one another. There are a number of significant issues around bullying and teasing particularly in the older grades. ...  Read more

We are starting our third year at STCS. While the academics could be better in Science and Technology, we've researched other schools and for the price STCS really is the little school that can. This is a very safe, warm Catholic environment, and ultimately this continues to win us over even when we ...  Read more

The Austin Catholic Diocese HR department went around this year and explained to all teachers how they are hired and fired at "the will" of the school and that can be for a reason or for no reason at all. That scares me because what kind of teacher would want to work for these schools? They cannot recruit ...  Read more

Amazed that other parents are speaking of "weeding out" and comparing the school to "esteemed" public schools. Really? We chose the school because it was a Catholic school but found that that wasn't very important to the administration or the parents. It is a very cliquish school and if it isn't going ...  Read more

We love St Theresa's! The tuition is a bargain as it's subsidized by the parish. Many teachers came from the esteemed Eanes School District. We've had top-notch experienced teachers throughout--not the "hit or miss" you find at even the best public schools around. The school community is involved and ...  Read more

We were so excited when our kids got accepted to St. Theresa's. Our excitement turned to dismay when we received our teacher assignments. Both teachers were well into their 50s-60s and we learned quickly that the method of teaching in both classrooms was very outdated. One of our kids rated as gifted ...  Read more

I felt it important to post a more recent note about STCS. I find it interesting that overall, most comparable private schools for elem/middle in Austin had an average of 4*s, which leads me to believe that in all these schools folks either love their school or don't (and leave). We have several kids ...  Read more
